All banks have reduced in line with central bank in turkey, had the benefit of extremely high rates for a while, now getting back to normal. You should not, necessarily just go for the highest rate, but the more established and longest running banks, maybe even more relevant now with the impact, economically and financially, of the fallout from Coronavirus. Just my opinion of course.

I'd be very surprised if you've been getting that since mid December.
The base rate was reduced to 12% on the 13th December, 11.25% on 17th January and 10.75% on 20th February.
